Question Replacing word and Capitalize words after

I have an assignment and I am not sure what to do.
In Unix, I use PuTTY

change the semicolon (Smilie to a period, and capitalize the first letter of the word immediately after it.

I know change command is M-% and "." so only one semicolon is changed but I am not sure how to capitalize the first letter after it.
Help please
Thanks Smilie
